Phil Henny's new book, Al Bartz Engine Man is now available.  Phil was employed by Bartz, working on his classic cars... And Bartz even used many of Henny's dry sump oil pans.

Phil has listed the book here on eBay for the next 5 days.  He will suspend the eBay auction for a few weeks while he's on the road to Watkins Glen for a Shelby reunion.

By June 25, 2012, the book will be back on eBay and Amazon.

Considered a engine guru down here in New Zealand this book is a must!! he built quite a few jet boat engines for river racing back in the 70's

We ran Al Bartz motor's in our 1969 Camaro until about 1976 or so...as did Carl Shafer before us.

Al was a personable guy, generally answered his own phone and was always responsive to a need.  A true racer and fantastic person.  So unfortunate he died at such an early age...

This is posted elsewhere but makes sense to be in this thread as well. Many thanks to Mike K (Swede70) for sharing.

Spoke with Phil Henny at the Shelby Nastionals, Watkins Glen 2 weeks ago and purchased his "Al Bartz" book, only just started reading it but it was great to talk with Phil about Al Bartz, great stories from Phil.
